It is magic. Here's a perfect example. Jimi who?

Wes Montgomery is the earliest guitarist I know of who played with his thumb like that. Though he never played as fast as Beck. But he was equally as impressive a guitarist to me.

Thanks again. And there's that incredible young lady again on the bass. Dang do I feel old.

I guess my curiosity is where or why he started with this technique. I mean he wasn't all that young in 72 by any means.

from the wiki:

"Beck stopped regular use of a pick (plectrum) in the 1980s. He produces a wide variety of sounds by using his fingers and the vibrato bar on his signature Fender Stratocaster, and he frequently uses a wah-wah pedal both live and in the studio. As Eric Clapton once said, "With Jeff, it’s all in his hands"."
